Veggies push meatless barbies
VEGETARIANS are aiming to offer an alternative to the traditional meat-centred barbecue.
The Vegetarian Society is promoting a meatless option for the griddle. The society claims that there are already some 4 million vegetarians in the UK and that 5000 more people each week decide to adopt a vegetarian diet.
In a lifetime, each vegetarian is claimed to avoid the slaughter of 1000 animals.
